My column on seeing ‘Blazing Saddles’ for first time
I have a lot of respect for Gene Wilder and that’s why I joined two friends on Saturday night for a special screening of Blazing Saddles. Wilder is very appealing in this film, love Cleavon Little in it and what a delicious treat Madeline Kahn is. But since I had not seen the film before, I was not prepared for the racial slurs, the gay slurs and gay stereotypes. I was surprised at how much it bothered me in the end and I share my thoughts in an Opinion piece over at Gay Star News. Check it out.
